when u have a problem, there is no open door policy, when u go to someone about a training issue or an issue with a co worker they use that issue against u in the long run. all around a bad company to work for.
The most enjoyable part of the job for me is meeting new people and building lasting friendships. When given the chance I have learned quite a bit under the leadership of one said supervisor by the name of Andre Wilson of the Northeast sub, this guy is amazing and will do whatever it takes to make sure the guys under his leadership get the proper training in order to perform their day to day duties. The hardest part of the job is dealing with some of my co-workers that may have personal problems and bring them to work. That to me kills the moral of any workplace!! I strongly believe that ALL individuals that work for the city should still get random drug tests because our lives depend on safety and a clear mind when dealing with heavy equipment and the public.
work hours, benefits, the ability to move around to different departments..
Short lunches, poor comunication between co-workers, and no one to report a complaint to without feeling like the victim.
Enjoyed working for the city but have to remember that doing things following the step-by-step procedures are mandatory even if you can do it quicker and more efficiently otherwise. As with any government employment the three most important letters are CYA.
structured work environment and benefit package.
strict adherence to p&p and those can (and do) change often.
The work environment can be stressful. I have gained life long friends.
